    I had them on my Jazz bass for quite a while. I liked them alot, especially when I first got back to playing bass. They are very easy on the fingers.

    I'm glad you found strings you like! Congrats! ;)

    Just wait a few more weeks when they die down. Mmmm, smooth, clear, yet punchy gobs of sonic bliss. Just you wait.

  7. i originally set out for chromes bu GC didnt have them and my bass nerd friend said he didnt think i would like chromes. :meh:

    funny though. the GC accessory dept guy didnt have a the slightest clue of what anything i was talking about. it was scary.

    me: im looking for the super long 36inch scale chromes 45-100

    him: chromes? is that the brand?

    me: no its the model made by d'addario. it dosnt look like you have them. maybe i'll try something else unless you have some more not on display. what is the scale length on those rotosound 77's?

    him: the whats? youre going to have point and show me which ones?

    me: (pointing and play hot/cold game with him)

    him: maybe you should just come around the counter and get what you want.

    a gc accessory dept guy that dosnt know what a ****ing set of rotosounds looks like. thats scary.

    The 45-100 chromes are the bomb...love em! Funny my GC always has chromes in 2-3 sizes in stock and everyone knows them and would never act like that clown. I get great service at mine for things like this. I tried Fender and SIT flats...tension way to high and they are not near as smooth or punchy as chromes...try the Fenders but get some chromes down the line...you'll be glad you did.
  9. I like 9050's on my P-Basses but I prefer Chromes on my J-Basses and my Ibanez Artcore.
